Abstract: A novel input device is presented for use with a personal computer by persons with physical disabilities who would otherwise not be able to enjoy computer gaming. This device is simple to manufacture and low in cost. A gaming application was especially designed for this input device, requiring four participants to collaborate to accomplish the set task. The authors describe the constituent parts of this device and how colour and simple pictures were incorporated into the physical input device.
